www vetownslink com Individuals in our Community Rachel Zelmanovich This summer s Ice Bucket Challenge raised awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis also known as ALS What most people didn t realize however was that ALS is the adult version of a debilitating disease found in children known as Spinal Muscular Atrophy or SMA Rachel Zelmanovich of North Woodmere has a 7 year old daughter Emma battling the genetic disorder SMA deprives Emma of physical strength by affecting her spinal cord s motor nerve cells as well as her ability to walk stand eat and breathe Here is what Zelmanovich has to say about SMA and the effects it has on her family Elana Dure How did you ind out your daughter had SMA Rachel Zelmanovich It was interesting because she was doing everything typical until the age of six months Then we noticed that she stopped crawling and that she started having some muscle weakness in her arms that caused tremors and shakiness We took her to neurologists and they did a genetic testing on her She was about 13 months old when we got a diagnosis ED What are some of the challenges you and your family encountered RZ Our home is a huge challenge because our home is not modi ied to her needs She is in a motorized wheelchair so she is very limited to how she can get around the house Another challenge is that I also have two other children The amount of attention that is given to my daughter with special needs is extremely high She can never be left alone because she is very fragile and weak and has no re lexes to protect herself if she falls ED Do you think your children have the same sibling dynamic that is found in other families RZ It s like the typical sibling rivalry It s the day to day sisterly love My other daughters are de initely helpful I m sure they don t fully understand what s involved but they do know that they need to be gentle with her and they can t be forceful They are very careful with the way that they are around her ED Is your daughter able to go to school and be in regular classes RZ Yeah The thing about SMA is that it doesn t affect the brain We thank God for that because it might be a physical challenge but we get to hear her tell us every day that she loves us and we can tell her every day that we love her Emma goes to HAFTR and is currently in 2nd grade HAFTR welcomed Emma with open arms and has gone far and beyond to make Emma s life as normal as possible HAFTR s faculty has made all the necessary accommodations for Emma and in some cases have changed day to day activities of the entire school to make Emma it in HAFTR is incredible We are also so lucky to have Lauren as her shadow ED Wow That is really special I m curious to know what kinds of support have been helpful to you and your family RZ Chai Lifeline has gone far and beyond I have no words for them They would send young girls to come and play with my other kids They would send us on family getaway trips just to give us some normalcy in our lives My daughter just underwent surgery back in July down at John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore They knew we were coming from New York so they hooked us up with meals and housing It was nonstop help and support They were absolutely amazing ED What would you say are your biggest dayto day concerns continued on page 8 FIVE TOWNS LINK 516 331 1885 7

PREVENTING STREP THROAT INFECTIONS I was familiar with probiotics and frequently recommended probiotics to treat or prevent diarrhea But for Strep David Elazar Simai M D Strep Throat is one of the most common pediatric illnesses The bacteria responsible for this infection are scienti ically called Group A Streptococcus but the disease became colloquially known as strep throat The biggest fear of all is the one of neglected strep In some patients untreated strep infections may elicit the body to produce antibodies that target the heart valves and cause a heart condition known as Rheumatic Fever Strep cannot be diagnosed over the phone While doctors may point out that classic strep infections are not accompanied by diarrhea clear runny nose a chesty cough there are always exceptions No matter how experienced the doctor was the study showed he was only correct in predicting the strep results in 50 of the times after examining the patients As I like to mention to parents while we chat and wait for the rapid strep results to complete some of the worst looking throat are not caused by strep and surprisingly some of the best looking throats are infected with strep You should also know that the rapid strep test does have a margin of error on both sides The rapid strep test can be falsely positive and falsely negative Because strep could be elusive every child with a sore throat should be tested with a rapid and an overnight strep test in order to properly diagnose the disease Prevention Until a few years ago the only advice I shared with parents concerned about recurrent strep infection was to make sure that their children are well rested I still feel that this is a valid point It is well known that our immune system cleanses the body at nights This is precisely the reason that when one is ill s he spikes high fevers mostly at nights About 4 years ago my oldest sibling Daniella Weill was visiting in New York Since she was studying at the time at Maayanot Institute in Jerusalem to become a Naturopathic Doctor I encouraged her to shadow me at the of ice and get some exposure to pediatric illnesses At one point we saw a patient with strep throat Daniella almost cried when I wrote the prescription for Amoxil What then would you suggest for Strep I asked Probiotics she answered I was familiar with probiotics and frequently recommended probiotics to treat or prevent diarrhea But for Strep I politely suggested that she may have misclassi ied this piece of information but Daniella insisted that she was right At home my second oldest son had just recently inished a course of antibiotics for his 6th strep infections in the span of 3 4 months We tried Amoxil as well as stronger antibiotics but to no avail I decided to test Daniella s idea From that day my son would have a yogurt with probiotic once a day After a few weeks my mother taught us how to make homemade yogurt which tastes much less sour and has no sugar added My son remained strep free for about 12 months It was during a major snowstorm that we ran out of yogurt and a few short days later he was on Amoxil again After this mini trial at home I decided to share this news with my patients While I could not guarantee that the kids will remain strep free I felt that it could do no harm for kids to have yogurt with probiotics As expected the kids who started eating yogurts daily did not get sick with strep as often and my mother s yogurt recipe was now used in many households On occasion I did see some yogurt failures but for the most part the hypothesis held true The explanation I came with is that the billions of good bacteria found in the yogurt may compete with the harmful bacteria in our throats Giving probiotics would correct the imbalance of bacteria in the stomach and make the throat less attractive for strep I have searched to ind a scienti ic study that proves this hypothesis but did not ind any Thus I cannot claim that this idea is scienti ically proven nor medically accepted but I would like to coin this as the SimaiWeill Hypothesis Having said that I do feel that there is no harm in eating yogurt So if your kids have been infected with strep often you should try and give them a yogurt daily for 6 months Any yogurt with active culture may help but I suggest that you start with plain yogurts If you child is allergic to milk you may start supplementing with probiotic powder These can be added to any luid or food as long as they are not brought to a boiling point One of the most helpful mothers from my practiced just shared with me today that she perfected my mother s yogurt recipe by visiting the website makeyourownyogurt com I must state that I have no vested interest in any yogurt producer or website my only concern is your children s health I would love to hear feedback from my readers who tried this yogurt hypothesis I feel that this may be a very helpful advice especially in crowded neighborhoods where the contagious strains of strep spread so rapidly So please send me your feedback and comments via email at DavidSimai yahoo com Wishing you a happy and healthy new year
